RE: Exceptional Weather Comes to an End

Forecast for the next few days here is no temps above mid 20's...ugh! My
kids are all sick (my son, poor little guy, is suspicious for whooping
cough! will know next week but he's being treated anyway) so at least
we'll all be indoors for the entirety of the cold snap. There go the
plans that kept me away from Perrenial Saturday with Mardi and Ceres but
again, that's parenthood. Anyway, looks like it's time to really crank
up the heat!!!!!! Stay warm, everybody!
